ANIMALS & ANIMAL SUPPLIES & EQUIPMENT:
Lost or found a pet (or anything else)? Jump to LOST & FOUND listings below.

Save a life! TRINITY COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER (563 Mountain View) in Weaverville has dogs & puppies and cats & kittens available for adoption. Note: Cat and dog pages are NOT very up to date, so call for cat and dog availability. If you have a specific breed or gender or personality type of dog or cat you are looking for, they can keep your name and description on file, and will call you if an animal fitting your description arrives at shelter. If you have a pet you can no longer keep, they may be able to adopt it out for you for a small fee. Shelter is located at end of Mountain View Street. Hours: MON - FRI 10am-4pm. More info: call 530-623-1370.

Save a life! PETFINDER.COM has over 260,000 homeless pets: mixed breeds and purebred pets of all ages (with photos) waiting to be adopted from over 11,000 shelters and rescue groups across the country. There are larger animals also available: horses, goats, sheep, pigs, etc. Please choose to adopt, rather than buy! When people decide to obtain a pet anywhere other than a shelter, it means that one shelter animal is denied a home and faces euthanasia. Please remember to spay and neuter!

PLEASE CHOOSE TO SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR PET! The number of animals looking for homes in shelters (they are the lucky ones), plus the number that are abandoned, starving, or eaten by predators, is heartbreakingly high! Area shelters are often full and can no longer take in unwanted animals. If you think you can't afford the operation, remember that it will cost just as much (or more) to feed all those new mouths, and more, if there are complications during birth and you have to take your beloved pet in for surgery! If you can't afford to spay or neuter, call Trinity County Animal Shelter at 530-623-1370 or Haven Humane in Redding to ask about programs to help pay for spaying/neutering, especially for feral animals. 

Adopt a horse and save it from the slaughterhouse! The reduction of the use of Hormone Therapy has caused the demise of thousands of horses. Read article.

ART SUPPLIES, EQUIPMENT, & SERVICES:

PHOTOS! ILMENAUER LAMPWORKING / GLASS BEADMAKING SET UP: $700. This is a high-end, German-made, unused almost complete set up for glass beadmaking / lampworking. You just need a propane tank and safety glasses (I am keeping those). Includes: propane / oxygen / air Ilmenauer B18 burner ($570); low noise jet set ($285); oxygen regulator ($53); adjustable propane regulator ($53); combination flash arrest and quick connectors ($55); 12' hose set ($20); brass masher ($15); 3" x 5" graphite paddle ($20); mandrels, rod rest ($5); sludge premix rod release ($7), teflon tape, and about $50 worth of glass rods.

Burner info: stamped on base of burner: Ilmenauer Glasmaschinenbau GmbH. Ilmenau makes high end glass-working equipment. I took classes in lampworking and did all my beadmaking on a Mapp gas torch at Studio One in Oakland. I took figurine glass class where they used this model burner. In a moment of art-inspired insanity, I bought all this equipment at C & R Loo in Richmond, CA in 1999. I have receipts for everything, except oxygen tank, which was free. Burner is like new. I fired it up once and it made a 3' flame and I haven't fired it up since. We moved to Hayfork and I never set up a lampworking studio, and I never will. This burner can work everything from glass beads and figurines to glass tubing, for making small hollow glass ornaments. This is NOT a set up for a beginner, unless you have an experienced person to teach you how to use it. Total cost of equipment: $999. I will sell the complete set up for $700. I have a 12-page PDF of the manual for this burner that I can email to you, if it helps you to answer more technical questions.I contacted C & R Loo, and they mailed me a one page sheet with additional info on this burner: "The new Ilmenau Burners are great for working with glass cane (rods) and tubing. Burners come with one replaceable tip for working with tubing. Use the LOW NOISE jet set for working with solid rods. These burners are available in a propane / oxygen / air version. You can adjust the burner from a pin point flame to a flame larger than the Major burner at the twist of a single dial. When working with glass tubing, use air in addition to gas and oxygen to make a wide cool flame; when working with solid rods, use only gas and oxygen. ILMENAU B1/8 BENCH BURNER: For use with propane, air, and oxygen (B1/8). This burner has a special stabilization flame and an additional oxygen tube in the central supply line. Center jet is a multiple nozzle. Well suited for artistic and laboratory work. The flame can be adjust over a wide range of temperatures for working with low- or high-melting glasses. Comes with 2 single jets for tubing and 2 multi-jet low noise heads for solid cane."
Rod info: Some of the rod was used in my beadmaking. Rod inventory: Two 1/2" clear rods 3' long; 69 colored rods 10" - 14" long; 26 colored rods 4" - 8"; 1 clear tube 3' long and about 1.5" diameter. Rod is of varying diameter, but mostly about pencil-sized. Photo of glass rods. More info: email Rachel or call 530-628-4579. Updated 1/31/13.

I'll sell the book for $20. I am willing to mail this book for an additional $5 for shipping (within US). That said, if you buy the lampworking set up above, I will throw in the book for free, if it is not sold yet. More info: email Rachel or call 530-628-4579. Updated 1/31/13.
